Stem Cells and AAGP™
Stem cells are usually small in number, expensive to expand, and often have a delicate constitution. They are meant to live inside the body. However regenerative-medicine research requires them to live and function outside the body. This environment, along with the processes of harvesting, purification, separation, expansion, cryopreservation and re-engraftment, are all stresses that cause stem cells to die or become dysfunctional. Therefore the inventory of healthy stem cells presents challenges for researchers and clinicians.
AAGP™ has demonstrated an ability to increase the inventory of viable stem cells. In laboratory controlled tests AAGP™ treated cells have survived harsh environmental stresses such as cryopreservation, hydrogen peroxide, oxidation, inflammation from interleukin 1Beta, UV radiation, and nutrient deprivation.
